Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE lEiHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, April I I, l9, Firms seek data on oil sands EDMONTON (CP) The province has received "a num- ber of inquiries" from com- panies about development of the Athabasca oil sands 80 miles north of Edmonton, says Bill Dickie, mines and minerals minister. Mr. Dickie declined in the legislature to name the com- panies, but said they have all been told to wait for an an- nouncement this summer of the Lougheed government's policy on oil sands development. Mr. Dickie said the Japanese have indicated renewed inter- est in the oil sands and he would meet with a delegation of Japanese government of- ficials and businessmen later this month. He also said he is "optimis- tic" about the sale of Alberta coal to eastern Canada, having discussed such sales with D'arcy Mckeough, an Ontario government energy specialist. Research is continuing on the use of pipelines to ship mater- ials such as coal, said Mr. Dickie. Experiments have shown such bulk transportation to be technically possible but expensive.

Neither police nor Cunard Steam-Ship Co. official v.ould comment on rumors circulating here that the measures stemmed from Cunard fears for dockin of liner that either Palestinian cr Irish j i terrorists would stage an attack: I on the liner, or that the EQ2 i would again be the victim of a! bomb scare, as happened twice j last year. j Police here said that almost j the entire dock area will be sealed off during the liners short stopover and no one will be allowed on mailmen, journalists and the usual vendors of English and American newspapers. The Queen Elizabeth 2 left New York last Friday for her Atlantic crossing, under the strictest security precautions ever seen on the New York wa- terfront. The precautions were apparently intended to safeguard the ship in advance of a forthcoming cruise to Is- rael from England. Art gallery buys painting WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. National Gallery of Art has acquired Pablo fa- mous cubist painting Femme Nue, and will begin displaying it Wednesday. Femme Nue, or Nude Woman, is Picasso's largest cubist painting and generally is regarded as one of his greatest. The purchase price of the work was not announced, but com- mercial art dealers speculated it was in the Si-million range. Such a price would be a record for a Picasso work. The gallery acquired the painting day after the 91-year-old artist died at his home in Mougins, France. It was purchased from a Swiss dealer through the Alisa Mellon Bruce Fund that had been es- tablished by the late daughter of gallery donor Andrew Mel- lon. FIRST LUXURY CAR 'S BUILT LIKE A VOLVO.
